According to car insurance statistics by If Kindlustus, the most common type of claims filed in March and April for car damage is windshield breakage affecting, on average, every sixth car.
Valdeko Kübarsepp, Head of the Partners Department of If Kindlustus, says that this new, simple solution is a great option for clients who have not opted for comprehensive cover for their vehicles. “Although by driving carefully a driver can minimise the risk of such damage to a large extent, there is no way to protect yourself from, for example, a loose stone flicked up onto your windshield by an oncoming car,” Kübarsepp explains.
According to Meelis Rajapuu, Sales and Marketing Manager of Glassdrive Estonia, car glass insurance is very convenient for the client because there is no need to make a separate contract. “Clients who come to Glassdrive to replace a cracked or worn-out windshield and pay for the service out of their own pocket will receive free car glass insurance for the period of one year. All necessary documents will be prepared at Glassdrive after windshield replacement. After the one-year free cover has expired, clients can opt to extend it at their own charge,” Rajapuu says.
Clients with a damaged windshield should visit one of Glassdrive Estonia’s workshops. The windshield will be repaired if damage is no larger than 2 cm, is not on the driver’s side and does not interfere with the windshield’s heating function. Repair work is free for the client. In all other cases a damaged windshield will be replaced with an equivalent one, and insurance excess, i.e. the amount covered by the client, is 30 euros.
“If Kindlustus is a valued, long-standing partner of Glassdrive. Working together, we came up with this flexible solution to give clients without comprehensive cover some extra peace of mind,” Valdeko Kübarsepp adds.
